Indiana House District 59

“My family has called Indiana home for over 7 generations. We live in a beautiful State filled with bright, innovative, hard-working Hoosiers who deserve better education, better paying jobs, and clean, healthy air, water, and land to ensure a better life for themselves and their families. Hoosiers deserve new, fresh, competent, experienced representation in all of these critical areas and my expertise gives me the ability to do that.
I am not a politician. I am a life-long Hoosier, a scientist, a teacher, and a small business owner. My expertise in education, science, and small business along with my experience analyzing and writing policy will benefit all Hoosiers. I am ready to lead the changes that Indiana needs for all Hoosiers to have a better life.
I was sent to Washington, D.C. as a science and education expert to work with the U.S. House of Representatives in the 115th and 116th Congresses. I gained experience working collaboratively in a bipartisan manner to accomplish policy goals that positively affected all people. I will bring those practical experiences to the Indiana Statehouse and utilize them to work on behalf of all Indiana District 59 constituents.”
